The murnong has a flower shaped like a dandelion, and beneath its innocuous, grass-like leaves lies a delicious, sweet yam.
This beautiful and productive food forest was established in the early 1990’s by local residents and is now managed by volunteers from Moreland Community Gardening. We’ve held working bees and perma-parties here before (2017, 2014 and 2013) and they’re always a very productive riot.
Melbourne as an urban forest, living life without plastic, the return of the Guild Sessions, a permablitz revisit, a new Collective member, tips for the garden and more!
Pip Magazine has been spreading the good word of permaculture across Australia since 2017, and we’ve been following them every step of the way.
